The body of the 53-year-old man pulled found Tuesday in the Crow River in New London has been identified as Paul Lindberg of New London according to the Kandiyohi County Sheriffs Department.

Lindberg's body was found around noon Tuesday in the Crow River by a construction worker, just north of the new dam construction site.

Responding deputies arriving at the scene found Lindberg deceased and the county coroner was then called to the scene.

There appears to be no signs of foul play, but the body has been sent to the Anoka County Medical Examiner's office of an autopsy. No further information is available at this time on the autopsy results.

Work on the new dam resumed Tuesday afternoon.
